    So I completely went against my plan

    and kind of unexpectedly told my therapist about the rape. She's probably the only person who will ever know ...except the man I marry. He will have to know. And of course, you EPers that know. But telling her really... Normalized me. I thought I would cry and it would be...

    Depression is not easy.

    Never easy. Depression, loneliness, anxiety, fear, procrastination - whatever evil it may be called. But one thing is for sure, it is debilitating. It is heart-wrenching. It is spirit-breaking, even mind-freezing. It sucked the spirit of life in you. Makes you feel both hopeless...

    One thing I've found

    that helps with not only depression but with anger and anxiety is working out. You have to focus on your goal and not on everything else.. Talkin to god also helps. A lot. Whenever I'm feelin down or just angry I head to the gym. :) Loosing weight stayin fit and solving...

    I haven't been this depressed in a long time -

    probably a year. It's so bad and I have no idea what to do. I'm in a new town, I have no friends here, and now my boyfriend is going through some things that are affecting me. I'm literally alone 24/7. And the pain I feel is unbearable. I have no interest in anything and I just...

    Depression is so weird.

    We put on happy faces to hide the fact that we are in fact so depressed, but at the same time, we pray for someone to notice and be able to help. For as long as I can remember, I've been hoping someone would be able to just KNOW that I'm not right, because I do such a good job...

    Telling me I can't be sad

    because someone has it harder in life than I do, is like saying someone can't be happy because someone has a better life than them.

    If you dont have depression,

    dont even bother telling me life gets better. The fact is, your living a happy life, and you dont understand what I am going through. If you dont have depression, you will never understand.

    My best friend, however, battles depression. I'll start at the beginning of the story, when I was 12/13. I met this boy who would turn out to be my best friend. Funny thing is, for the first 10 months all he did was beat me up. I didn't know why, but to his face, I laughed it...

    Rip Robin Williams I got to meet him a couple

    of years ago at a function dinner in Las Vegas. I will never forget that experience because I felt he was a very dark, sad, and tortured individual. He seemed very very manic and unsettled yet also very sad. He had been in pain for years. I hope he is at peace.

    Happiness Is A Choice? Bullshit.......

    If you honestly deal with depression, you know that you "don't have a choice". People who say that happiness is a choice, don't deal with depression. I'm sorry but it's been proven that chemicals off-balanced in the brain, contribute to depression. Telling a person who has been...
